If you are a foreign student it is VERY important that you participate in the International Welcome Day and other events that are arranged through the international office.

You will be introduced to our campus, visit the Study Service Team, get to know more about AAU’s study life, receive instructions on official registration at the Danish authorities, and information on other practical matters. The administration in Copenhagen is NOT able to help you afterwards.


Note regarding the SU office:  

The site is in Danish but if you are a foreign citizen you can read about the SU rules at the site, if you scroll a bit.

If you want to apply for SU you have to fill out an application form at via the online system min SU. You also have to fill out a special form for foreign citizens (pops-up when registering that you are not a Danish citizen). The application form has to be sent to the SU-office whereupon we will register it and forward it to the Danish authorities. Please note that it can take up to several months before you receive an answer.

Course schedule and book lists

Moodle is the intranet used at Aalborg University. Through this network, you can find important information about your study programme, such as course schedule, academic calendar, course descriptions, and book lists. Your information will be published in Moodle during the last two weeks before your semester starts.

If you do not see any information in Moodle when you log in, it is not yet available. We therefore recommend that you check back regularly.

In Moodle, you can also see how to get in touch with your study secretary, if you have questions regarding your study programme. Your study secretary can also contact you via your AAU email.
